San Francisco 49ers kicker Robbie Gould turned toward the Chicago Bears' sideline and let out a triumphant scream. I was going against a team that I have a lot of respect for. He mustered 293 yards on26-of-37 passing with one interception that wasn't his fault. Here are some playing time observations from the team's 15-14 win in Week 13 against the Chicago Bears.

OFFENSE (75 plays)Quarterback - Jimmy Garoppolo 75 Running back - Carlos Hyde 50, Kyle Juszczyk 40, Matt Breida 24 Wide receiver - Marquise Goodwin 58, Louis Murphy 42, Trent Taylor 31, Kendrick Bourne 25, Aldrick Robinson 18 Tight end - Garrett Celek 52, George Kittle 27, Logan Paulsen 8 Offensive line - Daniel Kilgore 75, Brandon Fusco 75, Laken Tomlinson 75, Trent Brown 75, Joe Staley 75.

"I thought it was a good first start", Shanahan said. "We felt good about the block we had on a potential field goal".

If there were any concerns over the amount of time it would take Garoppolo to adapt to starting in Shanahan's offense, those were quickly put to bed as he produced an extremely strong display. He grew up in the Chicago suburbs, where he watched Bears games on television as a child. "You don't know if it's going to come true or not but it's insane how things work out". "You don't really know if it's going to come true or not, but it's insane how things work out". The loss secured the Bears' fourth consecutive losing season, including its third sub-.500 season in a row under head coach John Fox.

"It was hard to even talk to the team after this loss", Fox said. "That wasn't the case today".

The Bears led 14-9 at halftime, thanks mostly to their defense and special-teams unit. The Bears managed two first downs on their final two possessions, both of which ended with punts. Instead the Bears punted to the 49ers for their game-winning drive but, regardless of that stroke of fortune, there will be some questions asked of the punt coverage in the special teams meeting room come Monday. It is just that we haven't been able to finish on those close games. "I've only been here a short while so it's going to take a little time but I think overall we're going in the right direction".

With precision, patience and the kind of poise that one might expect at Rolling Meadows, not on his first-ever National Football League game-winning drive, Garoppolo uncorked a flawless throw for Taylor. He attempted just 15 passes, completing 12 of those for 102 yards and a touchdown. It was a successful return for Gould, who kicked all of San Francisco's points, converting his fifth field goal with four seconds left to propel the 49ers to victory.

"Just pretty excited to get a chance to go out and do your job and go out and compete against a lot of people I have a lot of respect for", Gould said.

Almost a year-and-a-half after his released by the team following nine seasons as the primary kicker in Chicago, Robbie Gould returned to Soldier Field triumphantly on Sunday afternoon.
